PITTSBURGH — A woman is suing Prudential Insurance Co. of America, claiming the insurer violate the Employee Retirement Income Security Act by improperly terminated her long-term disability benefits after she was injured in a crash.
Lorrie R. Lazor filed a complaint on June 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Prudential Insurance Co. of America alleging that the insurance firm terminated plaintiff's disability benefits.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she received disability benefits but then was suddenly terminated by letter on May 26, 2015. The plaintiff holds Prudential Insurance Co. of America responsible because the defendant allegedly made a determination that the plaintiff did not meet the standards for a disability based on the report of only one treating physician.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by William F. Goodrich of Goodrich & Geist, P.C. in Pittsburgh.
